Inflation for food items has become one of the biggest drivers of the latest inflation hike. Annual inflation for these items is now running at 12.7%, up from 9.8% in June, fuelled largely by price rises for basics such as bread, milk, cheese and eggs.
Supermarket chain Iceland has begun offering micro-loans to customers to cover the basics.
